Portland, Maine’s rising thrash metal band, Ruin, are tearing up the underground circuit with their mix of Fear Factory-esque extreme thrash, Lamb of God groove, and hints of progressive influence. A solid example of New England’s blooming local scene, we’re stoked to help share Ruin’s music with the masses via this free download of their song “Living in Fear”.

Taken from Ruin’s third full-length release Rite of Passage (order your copy here), “Living in Fear” is among the band’s 8 new tracks which were produced and mastered by Kevin Billingslea at Lion’s Maine Studio in Waterboro, Maine.
